I just had the cat shaved and while he seemed very unimpressed by the whole thing he does seem happier. I think he is happier because everyone is paying more attention to him now. Beofre I was ignoring him to a point simply because I am not home much but when I am he causes my allergies to act up when I touch him. I need to find another home for him where he can be better appreciated and played with. But at least he is not shedding everywhere now and I can play with him. He is a very cute cat with a great personality. I will be sad to let him go to another home.
